Lightweight 35

Looking for a good light weight 35. Going on a DD that sees Florida Trails, IE water and mud no rocks. Want to keep the tire light due to not being able to regear yet

I just got the 315/70/17 Duratracs. Extremely good for DD. I can barely hear them at 70 mph. I was going with the Trail Grapplers but at 18lbs more per tire on stock 3.21 gearing I changed my mind. My rims are 30lbs each according to the specs and mounted, balanced, and aired up each tire and rim weighs 96lbs. These things are fun to lift into place, very glad I didn't get the Trail Grapplers.

The BF Goodrich KM2s are another good and lightweight tires that you can run.
